In this laboratory, the performance characteristics of lubricating oils and greases being used industry are tested, such as extreme pressure, welding load, coefficient of friction, scoring. Standard test rigs are used in accordance with standard test method.
Emission Measurements Department equipted with devices for analyzing and measuring the exhaust gas components and the percentages of these component emitted from engines and vehicles which use different types of fuel (Gasoline, Diesel, and CNG), Also can measure Octane number of Gasoline fuel, and measure the performance and efficiency of heavy duty vehicles.
The department run-in the overhauled engine according to a specific program of different loads and speeds for its crucial effect on prolonging the engine life.
The department also carries out performance test on engines by measuring :
The idea of establishing Misr Petroleum Research Centre started in 1965 in April 1976 Ghamra Research Center was built in Cairo.
The main aim was serve the petroleum industry in Egypt through the evaluation and development of various petroleum products besides performing laboratory and field researches to cope with a non-stop world development.
The research center was established by technical staff and equipped with the most recent apparatus as well as test engines necessary for its research and routine works.
